Tina and Frances share the same neighbourhood but different worlds. Homeless Tina sleeps at a city beach with her partner Ben. Desperate for a better life she plans a new start in an idyllic country town. That’s until Ben steals all her money. Unable to track him down she ends up at a Crisis Centre where she meets social worker Frances.
